Bacon & Cream Cheese Crescents
This is one of my all time favorite appetizers. These Bacon & Cream Cheese Crescents always disappear fast and taste amazing! I have made these for many parties, and people love them! Enjoy!
BACON & CREAM CHEESE CRESCENTS
2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces cream cheese, very soft
1/2 C shredded Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 T finely chopped onion
1 T milk
2 T chopped Italian parsley
Poppy seeds, if desired
NOTE: I used whole crescent triangles and made larger crescents. You can cut the triangles into half triangles and get smaller crescents if you want bite-sized pieces.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Stir together the bacon, cream cheese, Parmesan chese, garlic powder, onion, milk, and parsley. Separate the crescent rolls into triangles. Put about a 1 1/2 T dollop of the filling onto the center of each triangle. Roll the triangles up the way you would normally roll crescent rolls up. Put them on a baking sheet. Beat the egg with a splash of water and brush the tops of the crescents with the egg mixture. Sprinkle poppy seeds on top, if desired. Bake the crescents for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are well browned and the crescent rolls are done in the center.
